University Libraries and the Center for Faculty Excellence are pleased to announce that Canvas Commons is now live and located within Canvas via the left global navigation. Commons is a learning object repository that enables educators to find, import, and share resources. A digital library full of educational content, Commons allows Canvas users with the roles of Teacher, Teaching Assistant or Course Designer to share learning resources with other users as well as import learning resources into a Canvas course. To learn more about this tool, visit the resource page on the Center for Faculty Excellence website where you will find an F.A.Q. and a listing of in-person training sessions available during spring semester (http://www.bgsu.edu/center-for-faculty-excellence/find-a-resource/canvas-commons-resources.html ). Training sessions will be held in the Pallister Conference Room on the following dates:
Wednesday, January 18 from 4:00-5:00
Wednesday, January 25 from 11:30 to 12:30
Tuesday, January 31 from 10:00-11:00
Canvas help, including assistance with Commons, is also available during drop-in Faculty Fridays from 1:00-5:00 each week in room 142 of Jerome Library.
